About the book:

‘Globalization’, a commonly used word these days, is the reason of changing global landscapes. Larger firms buy small, authentic companies, the small companies that want to keep doing what they do, and don’t want to be bought by larger firms, struggle to compete, and eventually disappear. Nick Claeskens’ view on this phenomenon is displayed in his first book, Bus Stop. For decades, sons and daughters kept the bus company that was started by their mothers and fathers alive. These past 2 years he travelled through Belgium to document their activities, to feel the atmosphere on board and to show who they are. What’s evolving and what could be lost in a few years. Safe travels!


About the artist:  

Nick Claeskens spent two years travelling with about 35 small bus companies that had been in the family for years. He captured a phenomenon that is currently disappearing. The small and colourful bus companies are increasingly being taken over by large holdings. In a humanistic and social way he showcases their strengths and vulnerabilities.
